11 ♥ Days in Japan: [1] Prelude + Shinagawa. Asakusa. Roppongi. Tokyo Tower

Ho Ho Ho! I’m back with full force again!

You know, researching on places to go in Japan and travel reviews kind of piss me off sometimes because of the limited information available in English. Most of the time, you ended up having to copy the whole chunk of paragraphs in japanese and paste in google translate just to know what the site is talking about. Well, if you know what I mean.

But anyway ain’t exploration and experience all part of the thrills when it comes to travel?
Alright alright, so that’s all for my intro and lets get it rolling~~

This Japan trip which I’m going to recap kind of run late…cause it happened more than 1 year ago..yes, Mar-April 2012. Please don’t get disappointed. >.< I know… but it’s better than never right?

Woohoo..my first trip to Japan and with my lovely colleagues!

And so we touched down during midnight at Hanada Airport. Caught the last train from the airport (which was damn lucky). The train station is exactly situated conveniently near the arrival gate (within your view kind of “near”). Kudos to Japan!

In this trip, we actually travelled quite a few places and therefore stayed in a few accomodations. First up: Shinagawa Shuku Guest House. As you know, Japan’s accomodation is also another sucker (opps sorry, it means not cheap lah) Being our budget nature self, Shinagawa Guest House seemed to offer a rather economic price for free and easy travellers.
Well, I do not have a picture now to show but anyway that’s my colleagues strolling with their luggage, trying to find our way from Shinagawa JR station to this guest house. So chilling cold~ freezing~

Okay, I took back my words. Here’s a photo of how our room looked like..tatami~~ and “fit-just-nice” space for the 3 of us. In case you are wondering, that’s me and my colleague (GL) busying texting our family and friends / facebooking once we logged into their free wifi. Too bad you can’t see our faces…hahaJapan3ajapan4

Lets jump to the part where we decided to visit the convenience store located just beside our guest house after we settled in…time for some yummy oiishi supper! As usual, even though under the same company (ironically), convenience stores in Singapore can never ever fight with the stores here because it’s freaky awesome; filled with ready-packed orgasmic food for grabs even during the wee hours~ weeee~~Okay that’s our supper (center photo) on top by the way. On top of that, it’s considered rather cheaper than what we have here in our same brand local stores. Hmm. :/
